We went there with the kids for a day out, the boating lake was in need of an overhaul and there were no boats. The wildlife park had some lovely animals but was very run down with empty pens and lots of maintenance required. A lovely area which could be superb with some investment and elbow grease .

What a brilliant park. We spent the whole day there with our two grandsons. 5 and 2. Had a lovely lunch in the cafe, visited the zoo and loved seeing the bear so close up. What a lovely zoo. Then picked a spot and had a picnic and played tennis and football. Very spacious park and had loads of room... More

With all the space its hard not to find something to do. Take a picnic and a ball and play, spend hours exploring the playparks then go bear hunting in the zoo. We did all 3 and had a brilliant day out. The food in the café was lovely and very reasonably priced. The zoo was very well maintained and... More

We felt this attraction was a little run down and scruffy. Sorry but that's how it was. A lot of money would need to be spent to bring the place to modern standards as after the main entrance things do look a little tired. It was a cold wet day when we visited, maybe better in the sun!

A disappointing and expensive day out. The zoo first and the question the ask is are there actually any animals? I ask because apart from a couple of goats, a threadbare donkey, a single wolf and 2 meerkats the was nothing to see, or more important for the children to see!!! The place looked tired and so did many of... More

The Dundee Flower and Food festival is held here and I have been every year since it was moved to the park A great day out for all the family.. At other times of the year the park itself and especially the Zoo are well worth a visit.
